The Pop Up Shop Event-74 West 47th Street in the Diamond District New York, NY
Uncut Gems Pop up Shop
Adam Sandler takes a turn from comedy to a dramatic/action movie entitled Uncut Gems. In honor and to promote the movie, the A24 movie company took over a real Diamond Store and turned it into an Imaginary KMH Gems & Jewelry store in the Diamond District of New York City (12/20-12/22 2019)
Art Imitates Life which Imitates Art then Life Again (Streetzblog 12/21/19) *A bit confusing yet makes total sense.
Free Uncut Gems Giveaways
The event was quite fun. Upon entering you receive a free newspaper set in the 80’s complete with He Got Game ads and Knicks scores. It also comes with a free movie poster. Then you may be lucky to get some Uncut Gems temp tattoos and a bottled water. In this area they have some very dope basketballs, but for some reason they are not for sale. Pretty sure they said they would be for sale in May on their website. I would have bought one for sure if they were for sale.
Free pictures on store on 2nd floor
Next you can walk upstairs, get your picture taken by the security camera. then you punch in your mobile phone number and they send you a quick 4 second video to upload to social media. After that, it’s time to choose some Bling from the movie set and get a couple selfies.
Mini Museum of props from Uncut Gems
Next is a mini museum with props from the film. Kevin Garnett’s Jersey and Kicks, some more bling and other various items from the movie.
Socialize-Meet and Greet the Cast of Uncut Gems
Then it was time to socialize. I met the 2 owners of the real shop and actors in the movie, Jessica Mullayev & Jonathan Aranbayev: who plays Adam Sandlers son in the movie. He had on a custom Uncut Gems chain that I would have bought on the spot. But alas, it was a gift from the movie and NFS. *The movie also stars: Idina Menzel, Kevin Garnett, The Weeknd, Julie Fox, Lakeith Stanfield, Judd Hirsch, Wayne Diamond and other familiar faces from the big screen and the Diamond District.
Avianne Jewelers-The Real Store
After I walked over with Jonny to check on the real store Avianne Jewelers, where I looked over some major big time B-B-B-Bling. Prices can be 750k+, 6k and they had a few items for $520 that were quite nice. Very awesome shop and make sure you check out the T’s, hoodies, bomber jackets and track pants. They are also very nice. High quality materials with Gold or crystal accruements. Avianne Jewelers is located at 28 West 47th Street NY, NY.
All in all a very exciting + Fun Experience. Everyone was in a really good mood which also helped make the event special. Now it’s time to see the Uncut Gems movie.
See you on the Streetz of New York in the Diamond District
SAINT LAURENT taps Bret Easton Ellis for Short Film
Brett Easton Ellis of American Psycho fame put together this short three minute film featuring clothing from Saint Laurent. He catches the SL vibe with the super skinny actors/models-Hopper Penn (Son of Sean Penn, Tes Linnenkoper and Dakota Linvall)
The BEE directed piece entitled The Arrangement takes us through a quick Love Triangle, along the way we guess who will end up with whom. Looks like part 2 could be fun!
The clothing is pretty subtle yet noticeably (Y) SL, the ultra skinny dark rock star jeans, bold silver on black leather belts, leopard prints, & and smooth leather jackets
The soundtrack assists with the vibe of the movie with Petula Clark’s Windmills of Your Mind
The short film comes out in April 2019, almost the same time that Brett is releasing his first Non Fictional book. *Note: I’ve read all of Brett’s books, but don’t have much desire to read a non fiction book by him. Would be fun to see his character Patrick Bateman in a new book about how he’s dealing with being 55 years old in New York City in the year 2020. That’s big time hopeful wishing, double doubt we will ever here from BEE on Jason again.
And where is Yves now that its just Saint Laurent?
Enjoy the clip and have a nice rest of your day!
Gaga & Cooper Killin’ It
I saw a Star is Born on 9/26/18, lucky to see it ahead of time. It’s a good movie. I can’t really do a review because I dont know how without spilling the beans on Born. The last Song of the movie is probably the best, this would be the 2nd best Tune: Enjoy!
New Blade Runner 2049 HD Trailer
Just the Quality of this trailer oozes stellar movie vibes. It also gives us a bit more insite into what to expect for BR 2049.
Blade Runner 2036
This is a little confusing. Bare with me. It’s a short film that depicts some of what happens between 2019 and 2048. Shows some action and gives some hints of the year 2036.
Blade Runner 2009/2018
Before the new Blade Runner 2049 comes out, I’d recommend watching the original. Here’s one of the best clips from the OG Blade Runner. Is Harrison Ford a Replicant or not?
And if you want more Blade Runner action, check out the Raf Simons x Blade Runner Fashion show here.
The Future is Now
The Original Blade Runner took our world we lived in 1982 to a future many of us couldn’t believe would exist. Now, watching the original, it’s not very far-fetched at all. Blade Runner 2049 will take us to an even more advanced future. Hopefully, filled with a bit more fun than the OG Blade Runner. It did have a few funny moments, but for the most parts kinda’ creeped me out.
I still don’t want to believe that Harrison Ford was a replicant. It took me till the 5th viewing to start to think he may be. I bet we find out for sure in Blade Runner 2049. Do you think he was human or replicant?
Harrison Ford will be back in action, which is awesome. Along with Ryan Gosling, Jared Leto and Ana De Armas. This special behind the scenes featurette shows us some new footage of the movie, along with some thoughts from the directors and actors.
Looks like they are utilizing some of the things that made the original such a classic. Along with an updated version of what our future may look like. Check out the featurette, See what you think? Blade Runner 2049 lands in theaters October 6, 2017.

There’s Still Zoolander 3, I still have chance! Have a nice rest of the week! See you on the Streetz of HI.
The Countdown To Zoolander 2 is ON!
In the latest trailer for Zoolander 2, we see the DJ from the first movie playing Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s Relax. If you look closely,you’ll see A$AP Rocky and it looks like Skrillix? Who else will cameo in the Zoolander 2 movie? Hope they didn’t tell us everyone. Remember Zoolander 2 opens February 12, 2016. It’s almost time to order up some Orange, Mocha Frappucino’s and vogue on over to the theater. (According to Vogue.com, Zoolander 2 premieres on February 9, 2016 in New York, the Night before NYFW16 begins. Guaranteed to have many Top celebs and fashionistas in attendance).
We’ve been told, there isn’t a Hawaii Premiere, so I’m thinking of seeing it on Monday February 15, 2016. If you notice any other cameos, let us know in the comment section. See you on the streetz and maybe at the movies. Remember Frankie Says RELAX. Watching Zoolander 2 looks like a relaxing activity, I bet Frankie would approve.
Even though this video has nothing to do with Fashion or Zoolander 2, I couldn’t resist posting it. If you ever want to have that feeling of falling from the sky, just watch this video. OMG! This skater must be super-good or super-duper crazy or I suspect BOTH. Watch if you want an SJF; Stomach-Jumper-Feeling. And please do not try any of this. If you do, don’t tell anyone you saw it here!
What’s Your Favorite Season?
Continuing to follow the hype of Zoolander 2, today we come across Vogues 73 Questions with Derek Zoolander. The video is a little long, but probably worth watching the whole thing. Cause’ some things are pretty funny others kinda’ strange. And who knows which portions you may enjoy?
Me, I liked Zoe Kravitz when she took her shoes off the couch and the surprise appearance by Super Star Street Artist, Shepard Fairey. What did you like? Dislike? Are you going to see Zoolander 2? BTW: I asked for a Orange Mocha Frappacino the other day. And they wouldn’t even make me one. Said they didn’t know how. I suspect, they just get asked way too many times and when they made them they didn’t taste all that good. Or maybe they don’t have the orange flavoring in stock? I’ll try again at another store before the movie opens and let you know if I get it.
Enjoy the vid and BTW: Vogue has some other vids in the 73 question series that are worth watching. You can see them on Vogue’s youtube channel channel or subscribe to their email newsletter.
Keeping Tabs on the Upcoming Zoolander 2 Movie
This new international trailer tells us a bit more about the highly anticipated release of Zoolander 2 or as Derek would probably call in 200lander.
- Derek and Hansel are holed up in some secluded area in the middle of nowhere fairly disheveled, looking a bit worse for wear.
- They come out of there funk/retirement to help some pop stars so that they don’t die with the Magnum look on their face.
- Penelope Cruz-Interpol agent Valentina used to be a swimsuit model.
- Mugatu’s pretty ripped with some mean tats, but it’s not really real.
- Mugatu still likes to throw Burning Hot Scalding Coffee or I guess I should say Latte into his assistant’s face.
- Mugatu’s assistant doesn’t look like he aged a day since 2001.
All of this sounds a bit silly, hopefully the movie is good. I’m thinking Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Will Ferrel will hold down the fort pretty well. And hopefully all of the outrageous cameos keep us entertained. And maybe we’ll see some nice kicks and clothes. Justin Bieber is already rockin’ some pretty nice Black kicks with White soles. Can’t quite catch the brand..Can you?
Zoolander2 Releases in the U.S on February 12, 2016, right before Valentines Day.
Is it Zoolander 2 or 2oolander?
The newest trailer is out for Zoolander 2 or is is 2oolander? This is when living in the social media world of instant hype shows all their/our colors compared to 2001 when the 1st Zoolander came out.
Streetzblog started to talk about it way back in March 2015.
Zoolander 2 can be seen instantly on YouTube-No waiting for the TV or the movie theater. The Big Fashion mags digital divisions email the trailer to your in-box. No waiting for the mail to come to see a paper ad. The celeb fan zones are talking about it, Just open your twitter account for 10 minutes and it’s there. No phone calls from friends in January to tell you about it because we all already know, and who still uses a phone for a phone? I’m writing about it and it doesn’t even come out until February 2016. We still have the final installment of Mockingjay (Got to see Early on 11/17) and Star Wars to watch before the end of 2015. And some pretty big Holidays-Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, & New Years.
I hope the trailer doesn’t show too much of the movie, but it sure tells us a lot. Mugatu (Will Ferrell) is back, check out his tats and pecs…LOL. Benedict Cumberbatch plays the ambiguous, hot, new, super-model, Penelope Cruz looks to be 1 of the main characters and Kristen Wiig will be fun to watch. (Not sure where Olivia Munn is?).
We also see The World’s Most Beautiful People (Justin Bieber, Usher and Miley Cyrus) dying on the streetz with a Zoolander Blue Steel look on their face.
Other notables I didn’t notice in the trailer but are in the movie include: Billy Zane, Christine Taylor (Matilda), and Kanye West. Maybe you can spot them?
Zoolander 2 or 2oolander, whichever it’s called looks quite fun. Just don’t get too excited yet, we still have a few months before it releases. Here’s the latest trailer to hold you over. And you can go to your local movie theater and play around with the interactive cardboard cut-outs of the main characters. I put a skirt on Hansel last night. Hehehe.
And lastly, is the movie entitled: Zoolander 2 or 2oolander? I still am not 100% sure. I bet Derek is pretty confused also.
